Praying Truth into the Lives of the Saints

Wednesday is for Prayer

 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for yousince we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints,… And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him,bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. 11  May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, 12  giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.  (Colossians 1:3-4, 9-12)

Things to pray for new believers in Christ:

  • that they would be filled with a knowledge of his will (vs 9)
  • that they would walk in a manner worthy of the Lord (vs 10) —obedience oriented; transformed lives
  • that they would bear fruit in every good work 
  • that they would continually increase in knowledge
  • that they would be strengthened according to his glorious might (vs. 11)
  • that their patience and endurance would be filled with joy (rather than grumbling)
  • that their lives would be filled with gratitude to the Father for the glories of the gospel (vs 12)
Church Planters, Elders, Pastors, Let’s pray this way for the flock. Such people who have such qualities prayed into and discipled into their lives by their leaders, will change the world for Christ.
